"The Simpsons" Planning to Kill Popular Character

Posted: October 1st, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Simpsons" Planning to Kill Popular CharacterSubmit Comment
During a recent conference call, "The Simpsons" producer Al Jean revealed that the writers are "working on a script where a [popular] character will pass away," adding: "The story will be produced this year, though it may air in Season 26."

This isn't the first time that a character will die. In its 25 seasons, the show killed off seven characters, including Homer's Las Vegas wife Amber and Ned's wife Maude Flanders.

While Jean refused to comment whether the death is similar to a "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" story," he hinted that "the actor playing the character on an Emmy [for] playing that character."

Below is a list of Emmy winners who voiced characters on "The Simpsons." One of them may be gone next season.

* Anne Hathaway as Penelope

* Dan Castellaneta as Homer Simpson, Grampa Simpson, Barney, Krusty, Groundskeeper Willie, Mayor Quimby, Sideshow Mel

* Kelsey Grammer as Sideshow Bob

* Hank Azaria as Chief Wiggum, Moe, Cletus, Apu, Comic Book Guy

Just kill the cast and crew. That'll solve all the problems.

@mink

Amen to that. They should kill off the show. Simpsons is a classic example of a tv show that's aired so long after it's prime and gone in such a steep drop in quality that it destroyed its legacy.

Oh btw, if I have to pick, My money is on Comic Book Guy. I think that, after he reads that Ben Affleck is Batman he's gonna have a massive heart attack.

^lol!



My money is on Grampa. That was my first thought when I read the news. Oddly enough, he's on the list. Guess killing off characters is the only thing left for the show to do to attract viewers.

I'm guessing Quimby or Barney

I changed my mind. It's obviously going to be Cobra Commander. Or Serpentor. No, definitely Cobra Commander.

Sorry Dave. Pretty sure we're all thinking it, though.

Here's something

Look at the chart for the Simpsons.

It would make sense for Grandpa Simpson to die, I mean they even said "pass away" not "murdered"

Also they should cancel this sh*t already and bring back Futurama dammit!
